Having played all the original 2d games, SOTN, and the excellent GBA and DS games, I had heard the 3d versions were not that great. So I went into this one with low expectations - and so far I frikkin' LOVE it! Love the look, the music, the gameplay. It lacks a little of that "Metroid" style of exploration of the handheld games - but I still am loving it!
I love going back to old games from the PS2 era - to me this was the Golden age of gaming!
